The Poldark and Vanity Fair TV producers have bought the right to Sir Philip Green's critical biography.
The clothing supermarket that controls Topshop's owner Arcadia Group can turn a life into a great drama about how energy and finances work in the United Kingdom and how it affects people when approaching supermarkets.
But the manufacturing company Mammoth Screen has struggled with how to cover Green's recent return to the titles. He has spent hundreds of thousands of lawyers in the office of Schillings to fight the attempt to name him an outstanding entrepreneur who may have paid significant sums to employees in exchange for silence.
It is possible that the Green Theater will concentrate on its rise from London's treasury trading to the state as the chair of the Arcadia Group dealings before intervening in the chaos due to his unsatisfied decision to sell the British chain of stores to a former bankrupt racecar £ 1 shortly before it collapsed.
The series will face the potential difficult legal challenge from Green, which has recently been fought by Telegraph, is still not completely wasted in court.
Manufacturers claimed they would also look at the inclusion of Green Non-Disclosure Agreements, but they were needed to make sure that "we miss the pressure buttons too quickly, because it takes time to develop these things and accelerate the truth."
Last month, trying to keep the Green Word from the media collapsed when Peter Hain, speaking in the House of Lords, used a parliamentary privilege to be named a businessman responsible for banning, which resulted in new demands that Green should get rid of his knights.
The former Arcadia insider later told the Guardian that Green had assigned a number of seven-digit employees who had filed for sexual harassment or intimidation while working as a tycoon. Other women have since come out with harassment demands.
Mammoth Screen purchased the right to a biography – damaged goods, which was won by Sunday's business editor Olive Shah before the latest appeal for Green's behavior became public. The deal was first reported by Radio Times and the production company negotiated with broadcasters interested in making the series.
Mamuta Screen Actor Tom Leggett said he was interested in this story, because he said similarity with "the wider government ecosystem, politics, media and how Philip Green was created by a system that included unauthorized arrangements between majors and journalists, who supported it. "
He added: "People of this type were presented in the 80's and 90's as a great business image for the UK, and we all need to strive for it. Then discover that everything is damaged is an exciting betrayal. Everyone is involved in creating these people."
The manufacturing company has consulted the potential scenario writer, but said he wants the drama to focus on how the BHS's fall affected people. The high street chain collapsed with a huge hole in its pension fund – Green later filled up after a protest, but many former employees remained idle and the store unit was sitting empty on large streets throughout the country.
Leggett said he bought the rights after reading the review of the Chess Book Guardian: "The goal is not to make a salazious piece of exploitation. What makes Oliver's book so good is that it's really a very modest and intelligent look in the big business. The drama about it is not about trying to capture the titles, but to give a true insight into how these companies have grown over the last few years. "
Green has different opinions about the book saying that the only reason he did not sue Shah for publishing was that "he is a cheap creator who in any case can not afford to pay damages."
"If he was a precious bear, I would sue him," he said already this year.
Despite this, Shah said that he still spoke with Green on a regular basis: "He will call and say," I have not read this fucking book, but when it comes to the film, I'm going to make it myself. "I knocked him on Friday and he said: "Why do you always want to sort everything?"
The journalist wondered which actors could turn to 66-year-old entrepreneurs on screen: "I want Bob Hoskins not yet, but I can go to Ray Vinnston."
Arcadia Group did not meet the comments request.
